Some of my favorite high end duplicates!

I thought I would do a quick post on higher end dupes. I love high end cosmetics because I feel like the packaging, product and variety are such a better quality! BUT....there are a few drugstore/lower end things that are just as good!  Here is my quick list. I dont have a price listing of the duplicates but I am positive everything I mentioned is under $10. When some of the higher end things run up to $45!!!! Enjoy guys! I will continue to do these types of posts if its well received. Maybe once a month I will do a duplicate post? Bye my lovlies!
